Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday April 19, 2014.
Toronto Blue Jays at Cleveland Indians
In Major League Baseball, the season is loaded with quick turnarounds and back to back games but the one thing that will really mess with a team is when they have to play after a double header. The Jays enter Saturday forced to play their fourth game in the last three days and they are still on the road. The Blue Jays are 4-10 in their last 14 games against a team with a losing record which is proof that they have problems getting up against a team with a poor record. The umpire favors this team as the home team is 8-1 when Dale Scott is behind home plate in a game that favors Cleveland.
Free Pick: Cleveland -113
Los Angeles Angles vs. Detroit Tigers
The LA Angles need to start winning ballgames and they need to start winning now. The bad start from a year ago set the tone for the season and they know that they cannot afford to go down that same path. They face a Tigers team that is still in the middle of transition. The Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 games when they face a team with a losing record and Max Scherzer is due for a correction as opposing players have studied him since his award winning season a year ago. The Angels are 15-6 in their last 21 road games when they face a right-handed starter and they take down Detroit with a big win in this series.
Free Pick: LA Angels +124
San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres
The Giants are just getting finished with a series with their rivals in the LA Dodgers and will be hard pressed to be up for this game against the Padres. The Giants struggle as small chalk as the Giants are 0-4 in their last 4 games as a favorite of -110 to -150 and the Padres are 14-5 in Eric Stults' last 19 home starts. The Padres get the Giants in a tough spot and get the big win as a home underdog.
Free Pick: Padres +127
